We need to talk

The first announcements came out today about TIFF11, and I’m already excited. The first film to go on my short list is We Need to Talk about Kevin. If you don’t think you will be interested in yet another movie about a couple dealing with a challenging child you need to pick up  a copy of Lionel Shriver’s book, We Need To Talk About Kevin. I can’t wait to see what Tilda Swinton does with her performance as the mother in this film. In the book you see the development of her very unique child entirely from her point of view, so when things take a turn you have to wonder if she just an unreliable narrator – or if she is right in having concerns about the titular Kevin.

No affiliation whatsoever

This is not an official TIFF site. If it was I would not have to wait in so many lineups with my festival knapsack full of water, snacks, sunscreen and other supplies.
